This course will provide you with the skills and knowledge to apply first aid in your workplace, community or home.
Who is it for?
This course is designed for anyone who is required to hold a first aid qualification as part of their employment or would like to learn about first aid for their own benefit. The qualification expires in three years and also requires the CPR component to be updated within 12 months to ensure the certification is current.
The HLTAID003 unit is delivered as a standalone workshop or delivered in service for clients.
Our workshop philosophy
The idea of the workshop is to present first aid scenarios in a safe and secure but fun way to ensure that each learner has the best outcome. For full day workshops, we have a morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea break so that everyone stays fresh and focused!
